There have been other straws in the wind which suggest that if Mr Johnson, a populist rather than an ideological politician, enters Downing Street he may be tempted to choose what is best for Brexit rather than what is best for the Union.

Last week, a YouGov poll suggested that most Conservative members believe that leaving the EU is more important than the Union.



I admit to finding unionism position on Brexit incomprehensible. How will unionism avoid a border in the Irish sea if Brexit occurs?

What's this "we" business, paleface?

Speak for yourself.

Is this news? Brexiteers have been described as "little englanders" for decades, so QED.

Something to do with the backstop.

If you can't see it, it doesn't exist, kind of thing.

He has a back history of complicity in a notorious conspiracy to commit an act of thuggery on a journalist who was investigating a million pound fraud perpetrated by one of his Eton friends, 30 years ago.
So that aspect of his CV is perfect for the DUP.

A return to the specific NI backstop is more likely than a no deal. Johnson with enough Labour rebels could and probably will opt for this imo.

Another example of DUP strategy being all over the place as they rejected May’s much less disturbing UK wide proposal with nominal checks at Ports. They’ll instead get a full customs border down the Irish Sea.

I wouldn't trust Boris to go to the shops for me let alone run the UK

Unfortunately Bel, you have no say in that and neither have the British electorate, the clown will be chosen leader by Tory party old farts who number 160,000 against a population of some 66 MILLION who will bear the brunt of his phukkups quite soon.

Donald Trump has given him a nice, ugly crisis with Iran to start off with, something that might take up as much time as Brexit for a while.

And it does not look like Trump is going to lift a finger to help.

Boris has a bad history with Iran ... he might get in over his depth very quickly.

The funny part is that the British are talking about a European task force to escort ships in the Gulf. Where are your American friends when you need them, eh? Let's find out just how much influence Britain has in the world.
